5 Random Video Game action figures!

Probably to my girlfriends dismay, I acquire a lot of crap. I make that sound like it just appears and I shrug my shoulders and go about trying to find a space for it. This isn't the case so I should probably rephrase my previous statement. I willingly purchase a lot of crap. I obviously …

Tomy’s Pokémon Viridian Forest ‘Polly Pocket’ micro playset!

There are many many toys I remember owning as a kid and enjoying so damn much. But sometimes I got things for Christmas or birthday that kind of got lost in a landslide of other toys. Not actually lost, but definitely forgotten about and not appreciated as much as if I had received this a …

The Toy Box! A delve into an 1980’s filled mystery box!

Firstly I should state that I am not sponsored by The Toy Box, I just have a big appreciation for old toys. I have probably mentioned before, but in the 1990's hitting up carboot sales, charity shops and collector fairs it was easy to pick up lots of awesome toys from the 70's and 80's. …

’90s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers ‘Auto Morphin’ action figures!

My memory is pretty darn good regarding unimportant stuff from back when I was a kid. But I don't remember if I saw the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show before or after I owned these toys . I probably did watch the show first.  I  remember watching the show  with my cousin, but I …

Odd food! Hotlix blueberry ant lollipop!

I have mentioned before how I am no stranger to eating bugs. I have never tried ants before though, and a rainy sunday afternoon seemed a perfect time to change this, seeing as I was gifted a selection of insect candy following my garlic bread and pasty sticks of rock encounter.     Looks a delight doesn't it. …

Promotional Mars 1994 Super Mario Bros figures

  Remember when you could buy  a chocolate bar in the '90s and could get a  free Super Mario toy inside the packaging? I sure as hell don't but wish I did.       There isn't much information online about these little figures, but I think they were only available in Germany in 1994, …

Video game Retrospectives- Captain America and the Avengers, Sega Megadrive/Genesis

    After getting a Retron 5 for Christmas last year, I faced a conundrum. I had owned many different systems and games over the years, but unfortunately  nearly all had been lost to time. The first few games I decided to re-acquire were pretty much the bread and butter of retro gaming, and ones …

Odd food! Garlic Bread and Traditional Pasty flavour seaside candy rock.

I don't think that the sticks of brightly coloured candy located at the seaside in Britain are something often found anywhere else around the world (apart from Australia perhaps). There probably are similar variations of it in other countries but for anyone who is puzzled as to what it is, it's basically stick of candy …

Video game Retrospectives- Double Dragon!

Gone are the days when men were men and engaged in street fights garbed in monochrome red or blue outfits and fabulous go-go boots. What time it was, the days when it wasn't considered morally wrong to fight your brother to the death for the rights to  a woman that  you both wanted to bang. …
